. the hawaiian authorities and civil defense here are well-prepared for this sort of thing. they deal with it somewhat frequently. and the protocol and the procedures they have in place are pretty well understood by the populace here. >> folks that have come to the hotel perhaps to stay at higher ground, do they know how long they may have to stay there as far as until they're given the all-clear? have you been told how this will play out? >> no, i'm not sure that they have. i'm not sure that anybody truly knows that, aside from it could last for several hours. but, you know, the hotel staff has been informative. they said the volume of the tsunami sirens will increase as the danger increases. thus far they haven't increased in the volume of the sirens. so far, at least, everybody seems to be fairly calm and prepared for whatever event may be coming our way. >> and we were listening in to a local newscast on oahu. and they were instructing people they need to conserve water just in case. have you heard anything about that where you are? >> i have heard that over on oahu. i have not he
here, the various agencies that are in charge, including the department of defense, department of energy and others that are going to need to respond very quickly. under craig fugate's leadership here at fema, we've had a chance to talk to the region al officials as well, and i had talks with governors of various states as well as other leaders. everyone is confident that the staging process, the pre-positioning of equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are in place. but as craig has emphasized, this hasn't hit landfall yet, so we don't yet know where it's going to hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts, and that's exactly why it's so important for us to respond big and respond fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all the members of the team for the outstanding work that they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique is we anticipate it will be slow moving. that means that it may take a long time not only to clear but also to get, for example, the power companies back in to clear trees and put things back in plac
herman a new york criminal defense attorney and law professor from miami, good to see you as well. >> hi, fred. >> avery, you first. the parents say this is unconstitutional and its attorney sent a letter to the superintendent saying stop the yoga or we're suing. do they have grounds for this? >> well, they're saying essentially that yoga is a form of, as they're saying it, hindu prose la tizing. these are evangelical hindus. no science about the workout, no science about breathing. they're just saying it's anti-christian. let me tell you something in my opinion it is a constitutionally unhinged argument. there is no basis. you know what, i spent time in federal court getting restraining orders under the first amendment. let them take it into federal court. the federal judge is not going to grant a restraining order. it is not anti-christian, it is not prose la tizing. it is absolutely proper for these 5500 kids to be exposed to this physical workout. >> richard, why now after three years and like a half million dollar grant to keep this program going? >> yeah. i respectfully disagree wi
to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about, charles woodson, gave a big donation, $100,000, that's great. a great example to set for the rest of the country. redcross.org if you're thinking. brianna, quickly, i want to ask about the recent polling that's come out in wisconsin, and while i ask you about the polling, i also want to remind our viewers that wisconsin is the home state of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for p
by the name of oshkosh defense, they make military vehicles, they announced they will be laying off 450 full time united autoworker employees. that will hit that very small region in the middle of the state very hard. president obama was in that area yesterday. governor romney is here in the milwaukee area today. kete happened in gree throughout the entire state, but you can imagine that the folks who are tied to the defense contracts will be leaning towards mney because it hits home for them. bottom line here in wisconsin, like many other states across this coury, jobs is the number one issue. >> the recovery here in nevada has beenott pl ithe country. 11.8% here in clark county. 12.3%. we're on top of the stratosphere here. this hotel and casino has poured more than $20 million into renovations in the last couple of years. they are optimistic that things are going to get better. they even added jobs, more than 100 in the last couple of months. and there are others smaller signs that things are getting better. that's the strip behind me, the big blue building to the left, that's 70% comple
house situation room with a number of top senior members of his team, including defense secretary panetta. also secretary geithner updating the president on the financial markets, vice president biden, we're told, also on that call. based on the readout from the white house, the president got a sense of the coordination ongoing between the federal government, state, local officials. the president also promising that the federal government will continue to assist in any way possible. this comes in the wake of calls that the president has had with state governors and local officials overnight and the impacted areas, new jersey and new york, also declaration -- disaster declarations that were assigned for new york and new jersey and emergency declarations for additional states including virginia and west virginia. the situation remains fluid. unclear beyond wednesday when the president will be heading back out on the campaign trail. it's a critical time, days to go before election day, so the president, the campaign, they want to get back out to encourage early voting and perhaps try
plenty of iowans that aren't defensed by either campaign. >> fiscally i just don't see how we can sustain ourselves. i mean, europe right now, i mean, big huge great empires, countries and all that, that they're going bankrupt. it's going to be us. >> reporter: orthodontist chad moran plans to vote for romney, but didn't think his math udz up to erase the deficit. >> i don't think either side honestly really has a plan for going ahead. >> it becomes a lesser of two evils. >> reporter: he says he can't plan a 2013 budget and can't hire. >> they're just not ordering. >> reporter: he says, like him, they're frozen waiting to see who wins the election and whether we fall off the fiscal cliff. >> i need some reassurance that we're going to take care of our debt problems, that we're going to help small business. >> reporter: he says he will vote for romney, but acknowledges there's little the next president can do without congress, and it pains him. >> this is my dream. i have everything invested in this company, and so, you know, my name is on the line. with the bank. i have to make it happen.
criminal defense attorney and law professor joining us from miami, today. good to see you, as well. >> hi, fred. >> all right, gentlemen, this young man, a junior in pennsylvania has filed this civil rights suit because he says he was the one who was violated. a sexual encounter he had with somebody on a ten-day field trip was videotaped. the school ended up suspending him for "inappropriate behavior." so regard, how will he go about saying he was the one who should not be disciplined, but the ones who carried out the videotape. >> this someone was his girlfriend of two years, the last week or day of their trip, they had resolutions, which were surreptitiously recorded by somebody, shades of tyler clemente in rutgers, the student says please help me, do something here. and they do. they suspend him and his girlfriend and the video maker, who has charges pending in juvenile court. in any event, the school district did not step back for a minute, they didn't appreciate or act on what happened here. they acted insanely, and some moron suspended him and his girlfriend. they will pay the price
coast guard and the department of defense all positioned, if the public is not following instructions, that makes it more dangerous for people and it means that we could have fatalities that could have been avoided. transportation is going to be tied up for a long time, and probably the most significant impact for a lot of people in addition to flooding is going to be getting power back on. we anticipate that there are going to be a lot of trees down, a lot of water, and despite the fact that the power companies are working very closely with their various state officials and local officials to make sure that they are bringing in as many assets as possible in getting those ready in preparation for the storm, the fact is that a lot of these emergency crews are not going to be able to get into position to start restoring power until some of these winds have died down and because of the nature of the storm that may make -- that may take several days, so the public should anticipate that there's going to be a lot of power outages and it may take time for that power to get back on. the same
out, something if the department of defense rules they're going to stand by so, they're not letting us talk to any of the survivors at this point. >> okay. i'm just looking at this video. this is obviously compelling stuff. turning my head here to sort of understand how far down they would have been, you know, rescuing some of these i guess swimmers, some of them off of this boat. so still two missing. hopefully we'll have that interview shortly. >> reporter: absolutely. we're working on it right now. one thing that i want to point out, all the people who were on that boat, they all had on survival suits. they all had on what you see there, those orange jump suits. and they had strobes with them. so when these rescuers came in, that's what they were looking for, looking for the strobes, looking for these orange jump suits, but dealing with rough winds, rough waves, it was a difficult situation, brooke. but again -- >> incredible. incredible. george howell, thank you so much for jumping on the phone. we'll look for the sound from that coast guard rescue swimmer as soon as we can get tha
their livelihood is directly attached to defense spending. that will translate, however, across the state. ali? >> ted, thank you. to cnn's kyung lah in colorado. unemployment there at 8%, just a little bit above the national average. will it come down to jobs for colorado voters? >> reporter: absolutely. you have it absolutely right, ali. it is about jobs. it is about how have people been personally affected by a job loss either within their own families or among friends? here in this very key swing state we've gone down to the counties, we've talked to the key demographics and we talked to the women. suburban women here are critical for either party in order to grab those states. we talked to women and they say this is about job security. who is it going to be in white house who will make sure that over the next four years my family isn't going to be impacted, what i put on my kitchen table isn't going to be impacted? we went out and talked to college students. they were really enthusiastic in 2008, helping barack obama win this state, winning the nine electoral votes. this time around they
. our whole government defense relies on the big board. stanley kubrick directed this and it has to be number one. there are no hanging chads in my number one because this is such a sharp, sharp joke about what happens when the government has to assemble and do something really quickly. now, you and i both know we're not exactly engineered for that. so in dr. strangelove, a general decides he's going to drop the bomb on russia, which is a huge problem. so peter sellers in this movie playing numerous roles as he always does, he has to kind of coral all of these people in the government and try to stop this, the crazy war that's going to happen just randomly on one day. and this movie just keeps getting better with age because, you know, lines never stop being funny, as our world gets more and more ridiculous in real life. like george c. scott and the russian ambassador are fighting and peter sellers has to break it up by saying, you can't fight in here. this is the war room. >> i love it. >> and it's a classic. 1964. you are reaching back. not to confuse it with "dr. no." you star
